My website is hosted by nginx. How to configure Discourse so that nginx can redirect http request to mywebsite.com -&nbspThis website is for sale! -&nbspmywebsite Resources and Information. to Discourse?

You need to set up nginx as a reverse proxy and rewrite all relative links from / to /bbs

Here’s how you can do that:

Please note that this may fail in some situations so I would rather recommend that you create bbs.yourwebsite.com and use that for Discourse.
